Our Mission

Fish Northwest is committed to the conservation and preservation of Puget
Sound salmon stocks while expanding fishing opportunities for Washington’s anglers, their families, and businesses.

We believe that by using the best available science, wild salmon runs can be both conserved and rebuilt while providing increased fishing opportunities for the public on abundant hatchery fish. We think this can be achieved by increasing hatchery fish production, ensuring balance, equity, and fairness is brought back to the North of Falcon season setting process, and by seeing that state and tribes simply comply with the Boldt Decision which requires equal sharing of the salmon resource.

Our attorneys are currently analyzing our litigation options. As we prepare to launch legal action in the coming months we will need all the financial support we can get. So if you agree with us that recreational salmon fishing opportunities in Washington State are the worst they have ever been, and you are ready to help do something about it, please consider donating.

We’re fighting for conservation and equity so future generations of salmon fishermen like this young fella can enjoy the sport!
